Welcome to Alt Academy
My name is Michelle Dickens, Executive Principal, and alongside Janette Sharp, Head of Academy, I am proud to lead our wonderful academy.
At Alt, learning is about the education of the whole child – both Academic and Character. Our team are committed to ensuring all our children get the best education possible, they have high expectations and work hard to ensure effective teaching and learning. We believe in every child.
We want every child to be the best that they can be. Our vision is to enable our pupils to become respectful, confident, enthusiastic and resilient learners. We want our children to know about the world, to accept each other’s differences, to be able to make informed choices and to stand up for what they feel is right.
We are working towards The 'Rights Respecting School' award (RRSA). This is an award which is given to schools on behalf of UNICEF. Our pupils are becoming confident, caring and responsible young citizens both in school and within the wider community. By learning about their rights our children, also learn about the importance of responsibility and of respecting the rights of others.
As members of the Harmony Trust we benefit from being part of wider professional learning communities with access to research, expertise and opportunities beyond the capacity of our own individual academy. Working together with parents, families and the community is vital for Alt to ensure that our children get the best support to equip them for their future lives. I firmly believe that by working together we can achieve our aims.
